Welcome to

Batley Multi Academy Trust

The Trust at the heart of the Batley community

Welcome Back. – September 2021

The Batley Buzz has been evident in all our schools as we welcomed our young people back into our family of schools this term for the start of the new academic year. Our family of schools is here to ensure that all our children receive a first-class education coupled with the very best care, guidance and support. We work hard across our Trust to raise the aspirations of our young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. No child left behind. Ever.

Our five schools all have their own identity, and our school leaders all share the philosophy of effective collaboration where we celebrate the differences of each school through strong collaboration, to inspire everyone within our learning community to be the very best version of themselves everyday. A strong ethos of mutual respect underpins our Trust, and our five schools lie at the heart of their community. We believe that Community Makes Us, and the unity in community is key.

As the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Trust, it is both a privilege and an honour to lead Batley Multi Academy Trust (BMAT) and in the coming weeks we will be launching a new look website, with a Trust newsletter and regular updates about the great educational experiences young people are engaging with across our family of schools. I firmly believe that the hopes and aspirations of our children are best served when the adults work together to ensure those dreams become a reality. At BMAT we see our schools as being at the very heart of our community, and we have a key role in making a positive difference in children’s lives and ensuring our young people are well prepared for adult life.
